25 chic nail art ideas to attempt at home

Now that we’ve got some time on our hands.


With an abundance of time suddenly on my hands, and my gel nails safely removed thanks to Pamela Laird’s expert tips, I have graduated from a daily nail colour change to trialing nail art I’ve spotted on Instagram.

Some are definitely for the more skilled (see everything by nail artist Betina Goldstein) and some are simple, like mismatched nails.

Don’t have the skills to pull off nail artist Imarni Ashman’s tiny line drawing on the smallest canvas of all time? Stick with mismatched nails in pale pastels or try your hand at a rainbow French tip. It doesn’t really matter if you mess it up, only the cat is going to see it.

Here are 25 of the chicest styles I’ve saved on Instagram to attempt.
